I feel you. Not that this is nearly as exhausting as getting a station ready for football season is, but at the law school we spent the week getting 200+ laptops ready for first year students, then ran orientation for one long day yesterday. It's a rough time of the year. Just wait until you're a student again.

Enjoy your weekend! You get a long one due to Labor Day, I hope?

Thanks. Sorry your week was so rough.

We're off Monday but a lot of people end up at work anyway. I might pop in for the morning, we'll see.

Ha, yeah, when I'm a student again I'm going to have a huge adjustment to make. Looking forward to it, though.

I am getting so excited to get these CD's. A year or so ago I bought a new laptop and transferred my itunes over...but somehow lost all songs that were not Itunes purchased....so all my songs from CD's were lost....including Beatles stuff. For whatever reason I never replaced the Beatles albums, but I'm now glad that I didn't due to these remasters.

Hope you enjoy your weekend, too!

Thanks. Now the real fun begins though, with students flooding in for a good couple of weeks with a million and a half problems with their laptops. Oh well, as stressful as the job can be, it pays far too well for me to ever quit. Plus, my coworkers are cool, and I can do homework during down times. It all works out in the end.

It's funny, my mom's going to school for her master's right now, while working as an elementary school teacher full-time, but she's only taking a couple classes at a time. Anyway, she complains to me all the time about how much time schoolwork takes up. It cracks me up that she didn't realize/remember how much work it really is a lot of the time.

Yeah, actually, the only Beatles albums I own are the ones I have on vinyl, which are all in varying conditions. It's going to be great to finally have everything on CD in excellent sounding form.

In fact, the whole of Sgt. Peppers brings back a lot of warm/fuzzy stuff. Still, it doesn't crack my top 2 Beatles LPs.

1. Abbey Road
2. Revolver
see i think revolver is hideously overrated. a bunch of good songs, but nothing more than that really.

abbey road's far and away my favourite.

i don't own anything pre-revolver, though i'm getting rubber soul when it gets a bit cheaper at our local jb, might check out hard day's night too, but i won't go near any of the early stuff. i really really don't like that kind of music.

and from my view rev 9 is shit i don't care how brilliant or inspirational or whatever it is, it's a boring and fairly pointless eight minutes.

I still don't "get" Sgt. Pepper. Yeah, I enjoy the first couple tracks, but it's definitely not their best or anything. I'm with the GAFman on this jaunt: Abbey Road is your number one, and Revolver probably hops in there at two. After that? I'm not sure.

It has to be The White Album or Rubber Soul. Seriously. That shit's staggering when you do a track-by-track breakdown.

Rubber Soul is a perfect pop record. Perfect.

Most of them are perfect pop records. The vast majority, in fact.

It's almost frightening, when you break it down, one album/song at a time. If not frightening, at least impossible. Or seemingly so.

Not the vast minority?

Sorry if I push too hard for that to become an Interference meme.

Let's all get up and dance to a song that was a hit before Lance's Mother was born.

As long as I have good sounding versions of Dig A Pony, I've Got A Feeling, Two of Us, Across the Universe, and the title track, I can live without the pristine version of Spector's Long and Winding Road.
